    Four days isn't long enough!!!

    The only thing you'll want to leave the resort for is the Boobs Cruise!

    See you at the sexy pool!!!

    This will be my 1st time going. My boyfriend booked the trip and I'm a little apprehensive about this. I'm not comfortable showing skin, not much of a drinker, and don't care for naked drunks. Trying to keep an open mind but I'm afraid I wont fit in or have a good time. Can anyone tell me what really goes on? Just need to know if I need to cancel my trip. We are supposed to be there June 2nd

    April don't cancel! I am a newbie and have never been so I can't tell you what REALLY goes on but I think you should have an open mind and go! If you have a preconceived idea you won't like it you probably won't! Any vacation is what you make of it! I have read TONS on here and one thing that always surfaces is no one will make you do anything you don't want too! I say go have a good time and relax!!! That's what vacation is all about

    Regardless of the resort, if you don't really like beach type vacations, then an all-inclusive might not be for you. I know some girls that don't really drink and don't like wearing bathing suits all day. Vacations to sight-seeing places (Disney, Vegas), are better suited for them.

    Now if you do like all-inclusive beach trips, then I wouldn't recommend canceling if you are just afraid of the resort. It is not this crazy sex filled drunken level 10 resort that some people describe. Now don't get me wrong, it can be, if that is what you are looking for, but it doesn't have to be. Some groups do bring more craziness at times, but it isn't like they consume everywhere and the whole place transforms. I like to tell people that TTR has options. The really crazy parts can be the sexy pool, and then the PattyOs night club, (both getting crazier as the day/night gets later). If those things are too much for you, just don't hang out at them. The quiet pool is nice, and you can relax and do whatever. People are still friendly over that side of the resort, and there is a nice bar to hang at. Even if your aren't a big drinker, it is still nice to sit there and have a smoothie or something. Also, you can hang at the beach. Isn't the best beach in Cancun, but it's cool to hang at and do water-sports or whatever else you enjoy. Nudity is mostly at the Sexy pool, and it is only the girls tops off. There isn't just completely naked people walking around and having drunken sex here and there.

    Also, I think the restaurants are really good. So you can enjoy your day at the pool/beach, then go out to lunch and dinner as well and not have to travel somewhere or worry about cost. Breakfast and lunch are served at the buffet, and there is a also A' la carte place as well that is great for lunch. And if you don’t like something, just don’t eat it and order something else. Then just make a reservation for a different dinner place each night, get dressed up and go out and enjoy yourself at dinner. Then find somewhere quiet to hang out if dancing isn't your thing.

    Don't forget you can also go out and see things in Cancun if that's what you like to do. Everything is easy to get to and safe. There are many all-day excursions you can go and do(snorkel, zip line, ATVs).

    The place is what you make of it. If you get there, accept a room you don't like, eat at the buffet every meal, and do nothing, then yes you probably won’t like it. But it doesn't have to be that way at all. Also, everyone is super friendly, and the workers really try to take care of you. How can you not like that!

    Excellent post! I wish I had would known about this forum the first time we went to TTR last year. My boyfriend & I felt like outcast at first & lost about a day & half trying to figure everything out. Finally we got it together & met really great people from all over the world & had the time of our life. We are now prepared & ready for our 2nd trip in 2 weeks.:lotsofmichaelfs:

    cancuncare bracelet

    Wow, great review! Tks.

    Will use the same line when we arrive in 3 days to the timeshare lady!!! I am excited yet nervous as I know my husband would love this but I am not as open to having my top-off. Just want to get away for a few days and celebrate our 8 year anniversary. June 5th could not come sooner. What does the Cancuncare bracelet provide?

    If you are referring to the orange Cancuncare bracelet, then the answer is that it technically doesn't provide anything. But was it does do is send out the signal that you are a member on the forum and/or that you have been on the boobs cruise before. It can be used as an ice-breaker when meeting someone. "Oh I am ScubaSteve, who are you? Lets do a shot!". I am more likely to approach a group of strangers all wearing orange bracelets, then people without them. Because even if we don't know one another, we actually may have already spoken online, or maybe we have read each others posts.

    I just want to say something to the ladies that aren't comfortable taking their tops off. I completely understand and felt the same way. You certainly don't have to at Temptation, but if you're ever going to, this is the place. On my first trip to Temptation a few years ago my husband encouraged me to try it. I held out until the last full day we were there. I was tempted a few times, but couldn't pull the trigger. I saw many other women that seemed comfortable topless and had nice even tans to prove it. On the last day I told my husband I wanted to spend some quiet time on the beach (instead of close to other chairs by the pool). When he wasn't looking I slipped off my top. It was freeing to let the girls breath. Nobody screamed, and nobody gawked. It took a few minutes for hubby to look over, and then his jaw dropped. Here I was, the girl scout cookie mom, topless on a beach. What would the neighbors say if they knew? But, at Temptation, nobody knows you and nobody gives a shit. My only regret was that I waited until the last day. We've been back twice since, and are preparing for our fourth trip next month. I still like to start on the beach when we first arrive at the resort. But, I confidence builds quickly, and I never come home with top tan lines any more.

    Can someone provide an update on the procedure to make reservations for the TTR restaurants? We've been there a few times, and I recall the procedures changing. In 2011, you had to wait in a line at 10:00 AM to make reservations for the rest of your stay. This changed to a phone call from your room, but availability was a question. What is the procedure in 2015? That little detail is the only reason we sit through the "meeting with the concierge" (time share litmus test) after check in.

    You go to the seafood restaurant between 930am and 4pm to make reservations for the whole week they give you a ticket with time and dates.

    It's really nice trip report, If you are planning for your first timer trip, it's important to know the scope of the land you are about to visit Hawaiian Islands Home.

    Great trip report, Those who love to travel and have never been to a specific destination before may think the only option they have for lodging is the typical hotel.
